    Remember when we all heard about that.
    President Obama Has Sent Personal Checks to Struggling Americans | Essence.com

    But, Romney's attempt to appear human is insulting -
    MSNBC Guest: Romney Giving Money To Woman Played Into ‘Patronizing Stereotype Of Black People’ | Mediaite

    Obama has been doing that in secret for some time now. Romney, thinking to cash in, as it were, ends up looking like the cold hard robot he really is.

    How many votes do you think Mittens figures he bought with that $50?

    Uh,it's called bribery. And if true, it may actually be a violation of Election Law. Paying Citizens to vote for you is wrong and possibly illegal. This should probably be investigated.

    Bribery.

    The last resort of the desperate for power.

    That's gonna stick in the gut of the left. It's ok for their guy, but woe betide a republican hand some cash over to a needy individual.

    "Mitt donated his inheritance to BYU's George W. Romney Institute of Public Management and joined the board and was vice chair of the Points of Light Foundation, which had incorporated his father's National Volunteer Center."

    "His performance as [the 2002] Olympics head was rated positively by 87 percent of Utahns. Romney and his wife contributed $1 million to the Olympics, and he donated to charity the $1.4 million in salary and severance payments he received for his three years as president and CEO."

    Mitt Romney - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    And I'm sure there's much more.


    But I suppose the fact that he had so much money which he could donate is somehow a strike against him.



    Whatcha gonna do? :dunno:
